Upon his arrival in Rio in 2010, the Dutch owner, Julius, fell in love with this charming and atypical restaurant in the village of Urca, a town of 7,000 inhabitants in the Rio's Zona Sul.
This brasserie, with large bay windows, offers a unique view, just below Sugarloaf Mountain. The picture-postcard scenery has long attracted Cariocas and couples looking for a romantic interlude. The menu brings together contemporary Brazilian, French, Italian, and Dutch influences ceviche, steak tartare, excellent meat (Black Angus beef, duck breast, Thai curry), risottos, and the fresh fish of the day. For dessert, the chocolate tart is sure to win your vote.
The decoration will add to your delight: fluffy blue banquettes and chic tables.
